How I Use It
I have used iMovie since its first appearance on the grid! That is to say, I have been using it to edit video since before the term "app" had been coined by the folks at Apple Computer, Inc. iMovie is extremely versatile in its ability to import, reprocess, and edit video clips into a sharable finished video file. Furthermore it allows users to personalize content and share it in multiple file formats, compatibility settings, and file sizes.
My Take
I love iMovie for many reasons: It is a powerful editing tool, an easily learned teaching tool, and a customizable presentation platform. iMove can be integrated into almost any content area and adapted for use with many types of lessons. I have used iMovie in my science and math classes to great effect. Students engage in the learning process and are able to express themselves in very personal and dynamic ways. It doesn't get much better than that.
